Exploring the dynamics of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) transmission in children

Hogan, Alexandra B; Glass, Kathryn; Moore, Hannah C; Anderssen, Robert S

Description

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the main cause of lower respiratory tract infections in children. Whilst highly seasonal, RSV dynamics can have either one-year (annual) or two-year (biennial) cycles. Furthermore, some countries show a 'delayed biennial' pattern, where the epidemic peak in low incidence years is delayed. We develop a compartmental model for RSV infection, driven by a seasonal forcing function, and conduct parameter space and bifurcation analyses to document parameter ranges...[Show more]
